Another film directed by Frank Capra which 'educates' occupying GIs about the Allies non-fraternization with Germans. In the public domain: according to openflix. Extremely racist, but an interesting snapshot of policies at that time. The policy only lasted a few months, maybe a year, until administration realised it was counter-productive. The GIs were also keen for it to end: Germany had many more women than men! Also interestingly, the strongly-worded script is by Dr. Seuss!
